1620 Road Fire Update


[Parkdale, Ore.]  Firefighters on the 1620 Road Fire reached 100% containment Thursday after completing handline construction around the spotfire perimeter.  The combined fire acreage is 80 acres.  The fires are 75% controlled and today firefighters will continue to strengthen and secure firelines.  The fire was first reported June 24th burning on private lands west of Parkdale, Oregon.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
With completion of the fireline firefighters are turning their efforts to the mop-up process.  Significant unburned fuels and vegetation inside the fire perimeter makes the mop-up process slow and difficult as firefighters must work through all the material to ensure there is no hidden heat or flame.  Firefighters will mop-up the entire interior of the fire.  This mop-up plan will reduce the possibility of re-ignition of the fire in the future.
The Type 3 organization from Central Oregon Fire Management Service will transition the fire back to the local unit Saturday evening.  Resources on the fire include hand crews and fire engines.  Specific resources assigned to the fire have been pre-identified to support initial attack within the area if there are any new fire starts.
